After 20 years as a Supply Chain Diversity Professional, I was skeptical regarding the value a certification would bring both personally and professionally.  However, acquiring my CPSD and my CPSM as well, not only equipped me for more formal conversations with other supply chain professionals, it gave me the creditability to lead my supply chain organization with best practices while advocating and engaging our small and diverse suppliers to realize maximum business value for my company along the way.
